SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs fell to Portland on Monday night in a somewhat meaningless regular season game, but all the talk afterward was about the powerful dunk Spurs reserve guard Jonathon Simmons had late in the fourth quarter.

Spurs fans have seen the athletic Simmons make similar plays this season, but Twitter exploded after his latest throw down over Trailblazers center Meyers Leonard. 

Many people on social media called it the dunk of the NBA regular season.

Words really can’t do the dunk justice so here is the highlight from NBA.com/YouTube: 

The Spurs play their final game of the regular season game Wednesday at Utah. The playoffs start next weekend.
